Randy Orton vs. Batista
Batista powers Orton into the corner on the lockup, but Orton comes back with a side headlock and takes Batista down with a drop toehold. Orton hammers away with a series of right hands sending Batista to the floor, and when he comes back in Orton connects with an inverted backbreaker. Orton hits his signature stomps, but a jumping kneedrop misses. Batista fires Orton into the ringpost sending him to the floor and that sends us to break.
We return with Batista still in control firing Orton into the second buckle, and following him in with a clothesline. Batista delivers a running elbow on the floor with Orton laid across the apron and follows up with a big boot after stopping the count. Batista covers for a two count and locks in a front facelock. Orton punches free and hits a clothesline, but Batista rebounds off the ropes with a clothesline of his own taking Orton down. Batista rolls to the floor where he preps the announce table and pulls Orton outside with him. Orton blocks Batista's attempt and smashes Batista's face into the table. Batista slides back inside and catches Orton with a boot to the face as he attempts to follow. Another boot to the face by Dave picks up two, and he sets up in the corner for a spear. Orton stops that with a kick and fires Batista shoulder first to the ringpost. They trade right hands with Orton getting the better of it and following a back elbow with a pair of clotheslines. Batista comes back with a big boot and goes for a powerslam, but Orton slides down the back and hits a powerslam of his own. Orton calls for the RKO, but looks out at the announce table and appears to have other plans. He measures Batista for the punt, but Dave is able to roll to the floor. Batista goes to the eyes when Orton follows, but gets caught coming back inside with a kick by Orton and the hangman's DDT gets two. Orton again calls for the RKO, but Batista counters and hits the spinebuster. Batista calls for the Batista Bomb, but Orton counters into an RKO from out of nowhere. Orton goes for the cover, but Swagger runs in draws the DQ at 11:55. Swagger hits the Gutwrench Powerbomb and leaves Orton laying. Swagger walks out with his back to the ramp like an idiot, so he gets jumped by Cena from behind who runs in and slaps the STF on Batista. He taps out, but Cena leaves the hold on until a parade of officials come out to pull him off. Batista has passed out, so Cena counts to ten over the fallen Dave as we're out for the night.
Winner: Randy Orton (Disqualifcation-Swaggerference **3/4)
